Once Again Ladies & Gentleman:
The Gift Bag

Every season registered press at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week receive a gift bag filled with random stuff of varying levels of usefulness provided by sponsors, and this season is no exception. For the past couple of seasons, the bags have felt a bit anemic, but they seem to be bouncing back to size, and this season there was so much stuff that they needed an extra bag to carry it all.
This season's bag is a sleek black vinyl patent tote provided by MCM, and it contains:
1 Rowenta First Class Travel Iron
1 Starbucks Frappucino folding purse hook 1 box Zone Perfect Indulgence All Natural Nutrition Squares
1 matchbook-style packet of what appear to be emory boards (?) from Chambord
1 box containing 4 Gianna Rose Atelier French milled soaps from Cambria Cove
1 large sized purple compact umbrella from fashion website
1 Martini Gold pouring spout
1 Madame Paulette Professional Stain Removal Kit
1 Nozin Nasal Sanitizer
1 set AOL retractable earbuds
1 .04 oz. spray sample of Forever by Mariah Carey eau de parfum
1 Designer Footwear From Spain small spiral notebook
1 Mercedes-Benz key holder in orange faux lizard
1 5.7 oz. can TRESemmé Freshstart Dry Shampoo w/ samples of TRESemmé Naturals shampoo & conditioner
1 neoprene iPod case (?) from Rums of Puerto Rico
1 50 ml bottle Don Q Cristal Rum
1 small tube VKi UnSpoken lotion
2 small samples of Honey Bee Soaps handmade vegan soaps
1 recycled paper notecard by Elissa Brown Barbieri from American Express
1 Maybelline gift packet featuring:
      Eyestudio eyeshadow in Copper Chic
      Shinesational lip gloss in Berry Bella
      Lash Stiletto voluptuous mascara
1 Diet Coke/Heart Truth Heart Health Journey pin
1 DHL garment bag
Alternative Rethink magazine Vol.2 from
1 O.N.E. wildflower seed card to be soaked in water and planted
1 500 ml carton O.N.E. spring water
1 Lincoln Square Restaurant & Bar Guide and neighborhood map
We said it was random.
As usual, things range from the totally useful (The $40 Rowenta iron, French milled soaps) to somewhat bewildering (a seed card? and what are those things from Chambord?), but at the very least, it's an excellent source for regifting.
